Five Timely 'Buffett Rule' Cartoons

As Tax Day approaches, and we all shuffle to figure out how much we owe Uncle Sam, the President and Democrats are hard at work pushing their message of tax fairness.

The core of their plan is the so-called “Buffett rule,” named after billionaire Warren Buffett, who has said that he pays a lower percentage in income taxes than his secretary. Obama’s plan would force the rich to pay at least 30 percent of their income in taxes.

Here are five timely cartoons that wade into the murky waters of any tax plan pushed during an election year…

No llproblem. There is no law against paying extra taxes and I look forward to Buffet donating a couple of billioin.

The wealthy donate millions all the time, generally to set up tax-free foundations to provide substantial incomes for their survivors. THAT was NOT what Buffett was talking about. Warren Buffett is what America would like to believe this country, this society, is all about. A decent concern for others.

Buffett has set aside most of his 50 billion or so to benefit others (not simply his family) after he is gone.

The Republicans have produced tax cuts for themselves and cut education, health, food, you name it, for everybody else. Al Queda, comparatively speaking, has been America friendly. Republican policies are literally and figuratively killing the middle class. In the long run, Republican policies, such as the Ryan tax plan, may kill the United States.
